yes, it's a common misconception by people who watch THOSE "REALITY" SHOWS that the bikes (and cars) are entirely created "In House"
'cause the details kinda' gets lost in the sauce that most of what is done in the shop was actually outsourced piece by piece from various specialty shops often scattered through out the state (or country) then assembled and possibly painted (sometimes only the final Clear-Coat) on the spot.
The Shop that commissions the work gets the CREDIT, while the various shops get paid by the part, and possible mention in the case of Tooled Leather and Specialty ART("TRICK")Painting or Fine "Pin-Striping".
What people aren't privy to (even the car owner, who isn't a welcome presence due to the pressure they TRY to exert since they generally DO NOT Understand that once the vehicle is parted-out, it's a waiting game to get the parts back for approval & final assembly.)
So shops USUALLY adhere to a "Don't-Call-Us, We'll-Call-You!" policy rather than have people milling around "under-foot".
